At 20 the will reigns... no kidding!

Raymond and I went to Dragon City today for lunch. If you've never heard of it, you should definitely check it out on Central. They have a fantastic lunch special where basically everything on their menu is $5 and comes with the best crab ragoon in town.

Anyway, our fortunes were especially telling today. I'll let him share his own, but here was mine.

It says, "At 20 years of age the will reigns, at 30 the wit, at 40 the judgement." No kidding! It wasn't exactly due to our practical judgement that we decided to pack up or sell all our stuff and move across the ocean for a semester.

Going abroad was just something we both wanted to do, for a very long time. We wanted to go on a big adventure before we graduated and moved on to serious jobs, and this chance to study abroad fit the bill. We're flat broke, not sure exactly where we're headed (and planning the trip in less than two months!), but we're just riding the tide and figuring it out as we go along. Wit and judgment will come later, maybe helped along by this cultural experience.

We're so blessed to have this opportunity and plan to make the most of it. Many thanks to all the people who have helped us along so far, including our families, people at Newman University, and the Heart of America Men's Chorus.

Go chase your dreams!
